MIDDLE RIVER, MD – L2 Defense Inc. held a ribbon-cutting ceremony in Middle River on Thursday morning,
The company – which provides technical services and training expertise to the defense, national security and first responder markets – had signed a lease back in April with St. John Properties, Inc. for the 8,200 square feet of space located within 12 Irondale Street.
The new property is located within Greenleigh at Crossroads, a 550-acre mixed-use community situated in the Middle River/White Marsh area of Baltimore County.
L2 Defense relocated approximately 30 employees from its previous location in Edgewood, MD.
Founded in 2012, L2 Defense works with the U.S. Military, Federal and State Government Agencies, academic institutions, and other defense contractors to provide engineering, logistics, and training services for chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear (CBRN) defense; emergency management, and national security missions. In 2018, L2 Defense was named the Fastest-Growing Private Company in the Greater Baltimore Area in the Baltimore Business Journal’s Fast 50.
“We conduct the majority of our business along the Interstate 95 corridor between Aberdeen Proving Ground and Northern Virginia, so Greenleigh at Crossroads represents the perfect location to access our customers and recruit highly-qualified employees,” explained Sam Lennon, President of L2 Defense, back in April. “It was important to remain close to our former address in Edgewood to mimimize disruption to our customers and employees in that area, but we can now recruit talent from as far south as Columbia which can be reached in approximately 30 minutes. The many amenities that exist in Greenleigh at Crossroads and surrounding White Marsh area will be extremely convenient to our employees, as well.”
“(I was) proud to join L2 Defense at its ribbon cutting in Middle River,” tweeted Baltimore County Executive Johnny Olszewski on Thursday. “L2 Defense is one of the fastest growing businesses in the state, and I’m grateful they’re investing in Baltimore County. Thanks for all you do to keep our military members and first responders safe.”
